anaerobic athletes ???

i want to be explosive like a sprinter, but do boxing muay thai etc. 
 
what excatly do sprinters have, anaerobic endurance ???

like i do power training, but on the "cardio" side of things ( and i use that word losely), what do i train for, is it anaerobic endurance or anaerobic fitness or somthing.
 
im not excatly sure how to put it into words, but what do sprinters do apart from lift weights and sprint lol.  do they do HIIT or somthing ??
 
im really lost, any replies would be deeply appreciated.
 
kind regards

    sorry, to put it in a bit more detail.

    im trying to configure my goals, and essentially, for the weight sessions, im building my strength ( then working power at a later date) but im just wondering what do i do for my 'cardio' sessions ??

    hope this helps

    Why do you want the specific attributes of a sprinter for a substantially different sport?

    For muay thai/boxing you need a range of things, some of which the sprinter doesn't have to consider: a muay thai fight is 15 mins long for a start, 100m can be done in under 10 seconds, completely different.

    Your cardio sessions don't need to look like a sprinters.

    There's more than one way to skin a cat, the Thai's do lots of long distance running at a steady pace. Boxers also seem to do this alot still.

    MMA fighters on the whole take a more progressive approach and do some form of high intensity work that more closely mimics the conditions of a fight: tabata is one protocol, but there are loads, sprints, step running, sled dragging, circuits etc etc.

    You need to be explosive and powerful for 15 mins, some of that work will be very hard, some less so.

    Sparring and muay thai drills are the best conditioning you can get by definition, and any 'extra' cardio should supplement that and not detract from it.

    Never understood this myself- every amateur boxer I know does loads of roadwork, some of them to the point of detriment.  Surely if running is on the agenda, running all out for 2 mins with a stroll recover for 1 mintute repeated x amount of times would offer much more in terms of performance?

    Sprint weight training best to do low reps and say 4-5 sets so something like 4 sets of 5. Power to weight ratio is key. Power cleans are the most important exercise, but will take you ages to learn how to do them and a good coach who knows what he's doing.

    Training wise are you going to do it on track or do it on a field, it also depends on how many sessions a week you're prepared to do. If you're doing muay Thai 3 times a week and the gym 3 times a week you're not going to be running on track 4-5 times a week(i wouldn't run on track that much anyways, you'll bet shin splints and stress fractures)

    Also what kind of fitness are you doing for muay thai.

    You're best bet is to probably train twice a week for sprinting, 4-6 150m's say on a tuesday, then 6-8-60-80m on a friday or saturday. Depends what you want to train for 100m or 400m or just extra speed. 100m is very much talent based, people can train all they want for it any never break 12 secs, pretty much most people wouldn't.
